Loosing weight too quickly/chronic nausea



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I was sleeved on 11/8/18 and my husband was sleeved on 11/29/18. As of today he is down from 280 (260 day of surgery) to 205 and he is concerned that he’s loosing too quickly. He’s also been struggling with nausea for most of the day. The surgeon’s office had him start Zantac 75 and peptobismal chewables to rule out just a stomach bug. (In addition to protonix for reflux since the surgery)

He has an appointment with his general doctor and he’s going to bring his concerns up to her as well, but I wanted to see if anyone had a similar experience here.

Thanks!

i have heard that men lose faster than women. So it could just be that he is losing differently. Or maybe your husband was trying to catch up to you so you could be on even ground going forward :)

I would say if he is feeling ok, getting all of the Protein and liquids in then he is fine. I was sleeved on 11/8 and am down 59 in total, 39 since surgery. I am ok with my loss to date and look forward to the future.

I had surgery 11/13/18 and I'm down 78lbs since surgery and feeling great. I started at roughly the same weight, so I don't think him nor I are loosing too quickly. Just like Jazzy said, so long as he is hitting his Protein and Water targets, I think he is doing fine. I know as a guy I always lost faster than the women in my life. So it is probably just that.

It doesn't sound like he's losing too fast to me. In fact, it sounds pretty reasonable for someone that is complying with their post-op diet and is hopefully getting exercise. However, the nausea is definitely not cool and not typical. The fact that he is not feeling well would concern me. No one wants to lose weight because they are nauseous all the time. If all the antacids aren't helping, I would be concerned at this point about a potential stricture or GERD. He might need an endoscopy just to check out what's going on in there.

Yes! Agree with all this!
